Have you ever worked with the devil? We all have, sometimes we brush it off saying, “oh he’s a little rough around the edges,” or “she doesn’t know how to do her job,” or even, “he’s having a hard day, he’s not really that mean.” In reality we are making excuses for them and letting the devil come into our workspace.
There have been several in my life and like you and needing to keep my job, I try to avoid them as they spread their lies figuring I would be alright. However, the devil is there, maybe wearing a new outfit, driving a new car or even smiling as they talk to you. They are just thinking and planning on how to discredit you and your work. It sometimes is so sly most people don’t even notice.
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
